U might be able to stuff Eminence Beta 10cx (with ADS1001S compression driver) into that volume - here's Eminence's predictions http://www.eminence.com/pdf/Beta_10CX_cab.pdf

fwiw could get a pretty good bass drum impact (~114dB 1M with an AlephJ clone) with the newer Beta 10cx in a Karlson 12. I'm not sure if a P-Audio's coaxial would be much smoother on the high end. (I've got their "hornless" 12cx and also Beyma 12cx)

There's always tradeoffs. First, to rephase it to become more technically accurate, I believe it's not the efficiency that's going to murder the dynamic. It's their limited SPL.

It may be worthwhile to use multiple drivers if the Tangband flat cone drivers are to be used.

I forgot your room is pretty enormous. Try a DVC sub and cross higher.

When discussing a pair of speakers, if a price point is also mentioned then it is usually assumed that price point indicates the pair.
At least for me. Sorry for the confusion.

Those eminence beta break the 9" height restriction. Their smaller brother BETA-8CX fit the height and budget though!

The smaller full range like the 4" tang band mentioned above seems to be a popular suggestion.

Another suggestion mentioned before:
https://www.madisound.com/store/prod...oducts_id=1616
Seems like a great lil driver. Off axis is pretty usable too.

The sensitivity is measured at 2.83V. As this is a 4 ohm driver, it is closer to 88dB/W @1m. You can actually use two of these per side for higher power handling and lower distortion. =]

Actually it looks like the eminence price does not include crossover or tweeter,

With the big woofer, i'd be looking at something smaller than an 8"

The horn is sold separately, so it's going to be way over your budget. Otherwise a great choice!

Well, either way, it never said anything about the price being for the pair.

At any rate, a pair of these...

Dayton PK165-8 6" Professional Kevlar/Paper Cone Midrange

With a pair of these...

Dayton Audio PT2C-8 Planar Tweeter

If I had to choose between massive dynamics and off axis response, I would choose a middle ground. Lol

Can those 3-4" speakers do that?

I can't seem to find the Alpair 7 for sale anymore and that was smother recommendation.
